FAA stories

We're a big fan of gadgets over here at DVICE. We'll take any and all, from cyborg cockroaches to climate-controlled seats. And of course, the ubiquitous smartphone.

NASA and the FAA have just decided to team up to coordinate standards for commercial space travel, making it easier (and safer) for private companies to make it to orbit.
